What is the difference between rooting and a bootloader?

Rooting is a process of getting root permissions for an Android device. After that we can get access to all file system data using Android SDK functions. Android must be loaded, and USB-debugging must be enabled and device unlocked.

In case with bootloader we use device or CPU vendor protocols to get access to data. We don’t work with Android and work with devices before Android loading. So we can get data even if device is locked by password.
